The Intellect Playtext series publishes, biannually, innovative performance texts under three interrelated strands: new writing (scripts), performance writings (‘non-traditional’ forms such as choreographic scores, devised performance texts, performance documentation) and translations (writing that is new to English-speaking audiences). The Playtext series makes available performance texts that are aesthetically and stylistically innovative as well as those that explore the socio-cultural and political contexts of their making. Each volume includes the performance texts alongside contextual essays that examine the processes of development, writing and performance as well as critical essays that discuss the texts from political, social, cultural and theoretical perspectives. Intellect's Playtext are concerned also to present volumes that engage with the wider historical and performance contexts of the work through, for example, the inclusion of production photographs, design sketches, historical documents and/or typographical design. The series celebrates critical writing, adaptation, translation and devising processes and provides a forum for textual performance practices-as-research.
